  1. App is a real storage hog

    I'm very DATA conscious and I have to be and consistently I've noticed that your game is most always the heaviest data user of all 263 of my apps. It's far too heavy and a real storage hog For example almost all of my other apps if they even list the size of their files it's in kilobytes. You're the only one that's always about 30 to 40 MB

      Where is your bingo button at when you do have a bingo. I had 3 bingos but no button to push to call it a bingo

      • Dispute Autocorrected words

        In answering 'Things as a Gas Station', I answered with 'Cars' which got auto-corrected to 'Cans' and marked as a duplicate with two other 'Cans'.

        Can auto-corrected words be disputed? - i.e. that the original answer was actually valid and the autocorrect should be turned off?

        In my example, above, there was no way to record that 'Cars' was actually the word I was attempting to write.

        • Fix your answer database

          I'm asked to give a tv star for letter B; I give Bryan Cranston. It's marked wrong, I dispute and my dispute is rejected. I'm asked a sandwich with B, I give Bologna and cheese. It's marked wrong I lose the dispute. Asked for a saying with K: I give keep off the grass. It's marked wrong, the ass in grass is starred out and I lose the dispute. I really could go on as this happens a lot, but you get the point.

          • Stop changing answers

            I like this game but often my answer gets changed and then duplicates someone else. You should definitely not allow it to change answers.

            • Needs a lot of work. Plays like a bad Beta version.

              Why on earth would you have the game change people's answers? I typed (correctly, I might add) Jamaican and the game changed it to Jawaiian which I don't think is even a thing and then gave me the points for a good answer! Recognizing typos is one thing but it's changing legitimate words to a completely different word and that makes me not want to play anymore because gameplay is not fair. And as others have said there is a horrible keyboard lag and not enough categories. It really wasn't ready for public release in its current state.

              • Make game rules available for reference

                The rules need to be available to refer back to. I remember seeing a "How to play" option when I opened the app the first time, but since I'd played the game before, I skipped it, figuring that if I had a question about the rules I could go look later. Now I have a question, but can't find the rules!

                • Coins for winning the round

                  I have one quite a few rounds on games that say I should receive my coins back if I win, but then I don't get them. How do we dispute that?

                  • Stop changing answers & other unfair gameplay

                    I type "howled" and it becomes "hopped" (which duplicates another player). I type "Cosmo" and the game pluralizes it. Yet, I type Deborah instead of Debra and that one sticks. Funny how the game seems to often change winning words to losing ones, yet leaves slight misspellings (which the rules indicate are acceptable) alone to also lose.

                    Between this and the bots who can answer 12 categories in 6 seconds, with some answers consisting of five to seven words (seriously?!), this game is setting people up to fail.

                    There's nothing more frustrating than unfair gameplay. Looking at you, 90026. If…

                                You mark many answers as uncommon when they clearly are not. You really need to do something about this, it is just not right!
